Haleek Maul – Prince Midas
Haleek Maul’s Prince Midas mixtape is available now.
It’s been three years since his last project, Oxyconteen, but Haleek shows that he hasn’t lost a step with Prince Midas. The tape sees the Brooklyn-based rapper spitting sharp witty lyrics, delivering biting social commentary, and serving up mind-blowing hooks; definitely making it worth the wait.
Kicking off with the aptly titled “Return,” the dynamic production (ranging from up-tempo and erratic, to sluggish and hazy) featured throughout the 12-track tape, brings his garish streams of consciousness to life. One of my favorites – and the one I was looking forward to hearing – “DREAMIN,” sees Haleek take the backseat as he lets Jah Koda shine with his two verses, before bringing up the rear; cleaning up whatever the dancehall artist left after his destruction.
Hard Tune: “Maintain,””MY PLANE,””DREAMIN (feat. Jah Koda),””Antyesti,”
